We have a dynamic program of events designed to energize and inspire the UT community with new knowledge and productive tools to augment their current and future projects. The CWGS student-run conference provides graduate students and select undergraduates at the University of Texas at Austin and other universities the opportunity to share their research highlighting issues in women's, gender, and/or sexuality studies with the UT-Austin community at large and CWGS community partners. This year’s theme is “Gender and Justice.” Given the multiple meanings of justice, we have especially designed this year’s conference to engage in dialogs across disciplines and colleges.

We have invited Dr. Radhika Balakrishnan, current Executive Director of the Center for Women’s Global Leadership and Professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University, to deliver our keynote address on Friday evening.  She will share anecdotes of her research and advocacy experiences on examining economic, social and women’s human rights. She will also share how this experience has been productive in generating collaborative research between disciplines, the academy, and the community. If you would like to only attend the keynote and closing reception, please select the ticket designated "Balakrishnan Keynote & Reception."

The planning committee has worked hard to create a dynamic event for the entire UT community and we hope to see you there.
